- Can I use alternate casting cost for effects that allow you to play a card without paying the mana cost?
- How would this interaction work out?
- Commander : what happens when i killed all players including myself ?
- Are there any rules regarding shuffling your library multiple times? Mind's Desire
- How does Arcane Savant work with Storm cards?
Shuffle your library. Then exile the top card of your library. Until end of turn, you may play that card without paying its mana cost. (If it has X in its mana cost, X is 0.)
Storm (When you cast this spell, copy it for each spell cast before it this turn.)

Mind's Desire Discussion
17 hours ago
You can cut the lockets, they are way too slow in EDH when there are better budget options. Echo Storm isn't that great as well. Mind's Desire is cool but in the current deck build you'll probably copy it only once and that's a waste of mana. Reversal of Fortune is also quite high on the CMC when you already have something similar on the lower side like Spelltwine as well as Memory Plunder . Stolen Identity is also high on the CMC curve and would cut. Treasure Keeper is a one time use and it's dies trigger effect is meh, would cut. Chancellor of the Spires is cool but as again high CMC cost there are better option like Diluvian Primordial which you have, plus triple blue in a three color deck is extensive. Mindleech Mass colors are a bit extensive and there are better options.
Hope that helps!

Found this through your reddit thread.
Your deck description doesn't really fit what it is that you seem to be doing with the deck. You say you want to combo out quick, which is fine you do you. BUT, if thats the case why are you playing Expropriate ? Or Part the Waterveil ? They're not bad cards but they don't contribute to attempting to storm out and kill with a Grapeshot . Speaking of Ignite Memories tends to be a more consistent Storm kill at lower storm counts I have found since each copy can deal more than 1 damage per copy.
Storm lists need access to two things to storm out, plenty of cards that draw cards and make more mana. You have a good start here with cards like High Tide and Turnabout . Next step would be stuff like Doubling Cube for your storm turn, but otherwise I think you're good there.
My Biggest general suggestion is that you need more than two wincons. The two that I notice are your Grapeshot and Laboratory Maniac . I like Maniac, I used him once too, and I would still advise Ignite Memories over Grapeshot . Psychosis Crawler is a good way to win games too just by drawing most your deck you win without having to cast a storm spell. Talrand, Sky Summoner and Young Pyromancer give you a way to still come back at someone if you fizzle. Mind's Desire makes it near impossible to fizzle though.
Granted my list is years old, I left the game for a while after I made it, but There may be some ideas you could snag from my old Mizzix storm build. It was pretty consistent T4-6 kill.

Also, as the deck grows I'm feeling that High Tide , tutors , and things like Brain Freeze or Mind's Desire will become alternate wincons to avoid pillow forts and other anti-combat cards. Alongside these cards are more turns for one-shot capabilities, and finally because it's funny the potential to mill myself with Laboratory Maniac is just fun . Thank you for the help! Anything that could help further these wincons would be appreciated!!

Update 19.02.08: Played about seven or eight games now with this deck, and it has won around four times.

Hmmm, ZeroZolo it may not be what you have in mind. But I do like abusing Bonus Round and going off with storm. Add in a couple more rocks you can use the Isochron Scepter / Dramatic Reversal combo route to go into infinite mana. After that your outlets can be Aetherflux Reservoir / Mind's Desire or even Grapeshot . Another way to make infinite mana is Turnabout / Reiterate or Mana Geyser with it as well.
That is going into the storm route though, but if your going for more of a value route like spell slinging than that's taking a different approach and I would say switch to a different commander like Mizzix of the Izmagnus or Keranos, God of Storms .

1 - Do not unban Jitte and SFM at the same time. That seems to be a no-brainer. SFM is a lot safer than jitte.
2 - Unban Green Sun's Zenith - I do not think this is a very powerful card. The only reason it is banned is being a good ramp spell with Dryad Arbor , which is powerful, but not that much. And it puts a significant deck building restriction on you - play a lot of green creatures.
3 - Provide a unified Pauper banlist that marries the current list for MODO to the paper one. It is very simple - just use the current one and add Hymn to Tourach , Sinkhole , Goblin Grenade and High Tide - done!
4 - Change nothing for standard.

Whir of Invention was scrapped in fine tunning due to being UUU, I will think about bringing it back.
My mana base is superior BECAUSE it runs no mountains, I'm on a High Tide list afterall, but I should add that I mitigate dramatically the risk of drawing into dead fetches by only fetching one of the duals, then all islands, in case I draw into the only G fetch I can always go for the second dual.

List looks great and it’s an awesome starting point towards more competitive play!
I used to run Kess as a storm deck with a LabMan backup (you can see the decklist on my profile, but it’s not up to date); I used Demonic Consultation as a wincon because it’s more reliable and easier to pull off than Doomsday, especially if you fighting stax. Also, I’d suggest on going with few other DD pile types because if you stick to only one and you don’t get to do it. you’ll find your self in uncomfortable situation of making a wild pile as I call them and you might lack speed and/or protection while executing those.
Speaking of storm: You want some spell cost reductions such as Baral, Chief of Compliance which will make it easier for you to storm off. Post-Ad Nauseam is your storm turn, you should try to lower your curve a bit more so you can dig deeper with it and win the game from there. Also, Mind's Desire is a card worth considering once you lower your curve down :D
